Best Moments

When healthy, Bazemore helped push this Hawks’ team to a higher level. Throughout the 2018-19 season, the lefty scored 30 plus points two times. His best moments came against the Indiana Pacers and Dallas Mavericks.

October 24, KB helped the Hawks defeat the Dallas Mavericks 111-104 by scoring 32 points. In this game, the guard pushed the tempo, helped lead the defense and set the tone as a leader. This is one of his best moments of the season because he provided a solid example for the younger players, not to mention he helped the team win the game.

In addition to the 32 points, Bazemore finished the night with 7 assists and 3 steals while shooting 54.5 percent from the floor. Despite the fact that this is a young Hawks team they play much better when he is healthy and on the floor.

Another solid moment for the six-year guard was his second 32-point performance against the Indiana Pacers in late December. Though the game resulted in a loss, he helped his team compete against a strong team in the Eastern Conference. Even though the Hawks plan to trade KB he is still a professional in the NBA and has the ability to produce offensively and defensively.
